Herniated Disc Specialists

At KSF Orthopaedic, we have a team of award-winning, Board Certified orthopedic physicians. We are committed to excellence in orthopedic spine care: treating spine, neck, and back injuries. One of the common spine and back injuries is a herniated disk, a source of pain in the neck, lower back, arms, or legs. When people say they have a “slipped” or “ruptured” disc in their neck or lower back, they are describing a herniated disc.

About Spinal Discs

Discs are soft, rubbery pads between the vertebrae, which make up the spinal column. Discs allow the back the bend and flex and also act as shock absorbers. When one of these discs is slipped or herniated, pain and symptoms can often occur in the lower back or neck. When herniated, the disc is being pushed back towards the spinal canal, putting pressure on the spinal nerves. These nerves are very sensitive to even small amounts of pressure.

Treatment

Often herniated discs can be treated without surgery after diagnosis from a KSF orthopedic physician. In severe cases, a physician may suggest surgical treatment. KSF offers a wide range of spine and neck services, including herniated disc treatment, in both of our North Houston locations. Learn more about herniated discs here.
